Star Wars: Adam Driver is Open to Reprising Kylo Ren

Actor Adam Driver, who played Ben Solo/Kylo Ren in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, discussed the possibility of his return to the long-running space opera.

"No, I’m totally not against it," Driver told Unilad. "For me, it’s a filmmaker’s medium, so my only thing is working with great filmmakers. Whatever the size… it's never been interesting to me, to an extent. There's interesting things about working on both. I always just follow people I'd be interested in working with, and whether I’d be right for the part – things like that. No, definitely not averse."

The Rise of Skywalker, which marked the final appearance of Driver's Ben Solo, was received favorably by fans, despite receiving poor reviews from critics. It also marked the conclusion of the Skywalker saga, which began with 1977's A New Hope and spanned three trilogies and nine films.

While the sequel trilogy divided fans, several projects set in the Star Wars universe such as The Mandalorian have been released to critical acclaim, fanning fans' need for more Star Wars content. Other upcoming Disney+ series include Obi-Wan Kenobi, Lando, The Book of Boba Fett,  Ahsoka, Andor, The Acolyte and Droid Story, as well as Season 3 of The Mandalorian and Season 2 of The Bad Batch. On the film side, there's the recently delays Rogue Squadron, along with untitled movies by Taika Waititi, Kevin Feige and J.D. Dillard.

Perhaps the biggest question mark in the future of Star Wars is the trilogy from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. "We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi. He's a creative force, and watching him craft The Last Jedi from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career," Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said when the trilogy was announced in 2017. "Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy." In the time since then, various reports have either said the trilogy was canceled or that it was still on the back burner. For his part, Johnson said in February 2021 that the trilogy was still happening but offered no solid timeframe for when production was expected to begin.

The Last Jedi, The Force Awakens and The Rise of Skywalker are currently available to stream on Disney+.
